Hoffman: Supreme Court ruling will help small rural schools in Kansas

first_imgKyle Hoffmanby Kyle Hoffman, Kansas State Representative of 116th District — The Legislature is nearing the time when we will recess on April 5. There are lots of things going on that are of interest to the citizens of Kansas, so I will try to highlight some of them.Education and the Gannon Supreme Court RulingThe Supreme Court ruling on the Gannon lawsuit was handed down on March 7. This lawsuit had been going on for several years and was filed on the basis of adequacy and equity among school districts. This ruling is complicated but recognizes that total dollars spent is not the only solution but that the focus should be on supporting teachers and improving student outcomes. Based on a previous decision in a 1989 Kentucky Supreme Court ruling, Rose v. Council for Better Education, Inc., there was a specific set of standards that constitute an adequate education.The district court was directed to use that test to determine adequacy in the Kansas education system. As for the equity part, the court has outlined the test that “school districts must have reasonably equal access to substantially similar educational opportunity through similar tax effort.” Since the ruling was received, the Governor, House, and Senate are meeting to determine the best manner in which to fulfill this mission. It will entail determining school financing as well as providing the best educational opportunities for Kansas children.The Appropriations Committee will be discussing this issue and will have a plan to address the equity portion of the ruling prior to the first adjournment on April 5. This will be of considerable benefit to rural schools, as they do not have the funding abilities of larger urban districts. Let me stress to you that as your representative, education is a top priority for me and the Republican PartySeismic Activity in Southwest KansasFor the last few weeks, there has been considerable seismic activity in and around southwest Kansas. Since 2009, Oklahoma has also seen an increase and has been monitoring the activity for the last several years. At this time, there aren’t any specific identifiable causes, since seismic activity has gone on in previous years, but not to that extent.The Committee on Appropriations is considering HB 2763, which is “an act concerning the abandoned oil and gas well fund, transfer of moneys; expanding and developing the state seismic monitoring network; and would amend and repeal existing statutes.” I will be watching this closely and will keep you informed about the progress of this issue.CDLs and Commercial RegulationsIn my last newsletter, I told you about the CDLs and Commercial Regulations. A hearing on HB 2748 was held last Thursday where there was considerable testimony presented. The Kansas Highway Patrol is opposing this bill based on safety issues and decreased federal funding. Another meeting is scheduled this week to work on the issues, and hopefully, will be a satisfactory solution for all concerned.ROZ ExpansionHB 2417 passed out of my committee and the House and is now in the Senate for its approval. I will keep you informed as to the progress. Close Forgot password? Please put in your email: Send me my password!

Instant Classic: McNeese Beats SEC’s Razorbacks in Double OT

first_imgSOC: Here’s the game-winning goal for @McNeeseSoccer vs. Arkansas.GOAL ?? Havana Johnson.ASSIST ?? Dayna Garcia and Nola Prickett.Cowgirls 3, Razorbacks 2 (F/2OT). Program’s first win over SEC opponent. #GeauxPokes #SouthlandStrong pic.twitter.com/kCyaWjZFI1— Southland Conference (@SouthlandSports) August 26, 2018 Lake Charles, La. – Havana Johnson’s game-winning goal off a rebound with 3 ½ minutes to play in the second overtime lifted the McNeese Cowgirls to a 3-2 win over the SEC’s Arkansas Razorbacks in the first-ever home match against a member of the Power 5 conference on Sunday afternoon. The victory was the second straight for the Cowgirls as they improve to 3-1 on the season. Arkansas (2-1-1) suffered its first loss. “This was definitely the biggest non-conference win in the history of the program,” said head coach Drew Fitzgerald whose team was without sensational sophomore goalkeeper Emma Roccaforte who left the game in the 32nd minute after butting heads with teammate Nola Prickett when making a save on a Razorback shot. True freshman backup keeper Gabrielle Christy entered the game and kept the Razorbacks out of the net until the 78th minute when Arkansas tied the game at 1-1 by Tori Cannata on a double assist set up by Carly Hoke and Parker Goins. The final minute of regulation took the breath out of the fans in attendance. With just over a minute left in regulation, the Cowgirls took a 2-1 lead on a goal by Morgan Middleton who beat the Arkansas goalkeeper in a one-on-one matchup after receiving the pass from Johnson. “I saw both the defenders go towards the half and she (Johnson) just played me a perfect ball,” said Middleton whose goal was her first on the season. “I had a one-on-one with the keeper and I just had to place it on net.”Arkansas had a quick response, scoring only 20 seconds later on a goal by Taylor Malham to tie the game at 2-2 to force the overtime.  After a scoreless first overtime period, the Cowgirls struck late for the game-winner which was set up by a free kick cross by Dayna Garcia into the box that was one-touched by Prickett and rebounded by Johnson for the easy tap-in for the game-winner and her third goal of the season. “I honestly didn’t think I would be in the position to score the last goal,” said Johnson. “Nola got on it and it just fell perfectly at my feet. I had a wide-open goal and I tapped it in.” Christy finished up the game in the net for her first collegiate victory with seven saves in 74 minutes of action.  McNeese got on the board first when Keely Morrow punched in the game’s first goal on a penalty kick in the 20th minute for her first goal of the season and a 1-0 Cowgirl lead. Arkansas outshot McNeese 19-15 and just 12-10 in shots on goal.last_img read more

Team wary of ability of Sun Devils

first_img“You can’t sleep against those guys because every game they are there at the end,” Gabe Pruitt said. The Sun Devils have stayed in games despite inferior talent because of the way they slow down the pace and create defensive battles. “They play smart, play so well defensively and take such great shots,” Floyd said. “As their talent continues to improve, they are going to be right in the thick of (the Pac-10).” Pruitt gets stealsPruitt is getting back to his pocket-picking days of yesteryear. The junior guard had a season-high four steals to lead USC’s defensive effort in Thursday’s 80-75 victory over Arizona, giving him eight steals in the past three games. “It’s just anticipation,” Pruitt said. “I saw a couple opportunities that I was able to get out in the passing lanes and get them.” “It’s been the only time all year we’ve talked outside our next game,” USC coach Tim Floyd said. “We’ve talked more about Arizona State this week than we have Arizona because we knew the effort would be there for Arizona.” Arizona State has lost its past five games by six points or less, three against ranked opponents. PHOENIX – There might not be a more fearsome last-place team in any conference in the nation than Arizona State. The Sun Devils (6-19, 0-14), USC’s opponent today, have yet to win a game in Pac-10 play but are in almost all of them. Trojans players have been warned about a letdown all week. center_img Pruitt averaged 2.2 steals per game last season but had made just 13 through his first 12 games played this season. Part of the decline is that Floyd doesn’t stress steals. “I don’t think it’s a critical stat,” Floyd said. “If it happens within our defense, that’s great. But steal attempts can put you out of position and allow teams to play five against four. We emphasize containment.” Young lifts averageNick Young is averaging 17.4 points per game, compared to 17.2 at the end of last season. He is at 19.8 points over the past eight games. “I knew if I kept being patient and didn’t worry about it, the scoring would come,” Young said. 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

AIDS letters sent to wrong patients

first_imgSACRAMENTO – A new employee at the state Department of Health Services inadvertently mixed up letters containing personal information that were sent to 54 patients enrolled in an AIDS drug program, state officials said Friday. The staffer thought the letters, which contained information about people enrolled in the California AIDS Drug Assistance Program, were form letters and randomly affixed address labels to the envelopes in which they were mailed, said Sandra Shewry, director of the department. The letters contained personal information about the intended recipients and explained whether they were eligible for Medicare Part D, the federal prescription drug program, she said. No Social Security numbers or medical claim numbers were included in the letters, which were mailed Feb. 27, the department said. Shewry said the employee has been reassigned, and the department is investigating. All 54 clients were mailed certified letters Friday apologizing and providing the correct information about their eligibility for the Medicare program, Shewry said. 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

Senate sends mixed signals on English as national language

first_imgWASHINGTON (AP) – The Senate voted Thursday to make English the national language of the United States. Sort of. Moments after the 63-34 vote, it decided to call the mother tongue a “common and unifying language.” “You can’t have it both ways,” warned Sen. Jim Inhofe, R-Okla., a fan of “national” but not “common and unifying.” Two dozen senators disagreed and voted for both as the Senate lumbered toward an expected vote next week on a controversial immigration bill. The debate occurred as President Bush traveled to Yuma, Ariz., to dramatize his commitment to curbing illegal immigration. At the same time, the White House sent Congress a formal request for $1.9 billion to cover the costs of steps he announced earlier in the week, including the deployment of up to 6,000 National Guard troops to states along the Mexican border. Bush generally favors the outlines of the Senate measure, a bill that calls for great enforcement, a new guest worker program and an eventual opportunity at citizenship for most of the estimated 12 million illegal immigrants in the country illegally. Inhofe led the attempt to declare English the national language, a campaign he said began more than a century ago. The Oklahoma Republican quoted President Theodore Roosevelt as having said that among other things, those living in the United States “must also learn one language and that language is English.” “If you’ve got any rights now you’ve still got them under this amendment” added Sen. Lamar Alexander, R-Tenn. Democrats disputed that, and said the proposal would curtail rights established by an executive order President Clinton issued to extend language assistance to individuals not proficient in English. Senate Democratic leader Harry Reid of Nevada went further. “I really believe this amendment is racist. I think it’s directed basically to people who speak Spanish.” “It’s ridiculous,” Inhofe replied. “I don’t think people will buy into it.” The Senate didn’t, including 11 Democrats who joined 53 Republicans to support the proposal. Sen. Ken Salazar, D-Colo., advanced the alternative that declared English to be a “common and unifying language.” It passed, 58-39, leaving the outcome of the symbolic debate uncertain. For the third straight day, a bipartisan coalition of lawmakers supporting the immigration measure demonstrated overall command of the Senate floor. Conservatives failed in their attempt to ban guest workers, who all have temporary visas, from gaining permanent resident status. The vote was 58-35. After a stumble on Wednesday night – when the Senate voted to deny temporary workers the ability to petition for citizenship on their own – the bill’s supporters won a reversal that said they could, as long as the federal government certifies American workers are unavailable to fill their jobs. The provision applies to workers with temporary visas in the country for four years. The vote was 56-43. Sen. John Cornyn, R-Texas, said the original provision was designed to protect American workers and the replacement would “put American workers in the back seat and foreign workers … in the front seat.” But Sen. Sen. Arlen Specter, R-Pa., chairman of the Judiciary Committee, said, “I think there is a higher value in not having the immigrant subject to the control of the employer where there may be coercion and pressure.” The Senate also voted 64-32 to levy a $750 fee on illegal immigrants who apply for citizenship and $100 for each dependent. Cornyn, who sponsored the proposal, said the proceeds would be used to reimburse state and local governments, hospitals and other institutions that provide health, education and other services to illegal immigrants.
